How to Watch The Impeachment Trial Live Online
The U.S. Senate impeachment trial of President Trump is getting underway, and yes, you can watch Trump’s impeachment trial online. Now that the House of Representatives has impeached Trump, the proceedings move over to the Senate where marathon hearings will determine whether they convict Trump on these counts and remove him from office.
WHAT TIME IS THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL
The Senate impeachment trial begins on Tuesday, January 21, at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT.
It’s supposed to go for 12 freakin’ hours! All the way until 1 a.m. Eastern, 10 p.m. Pacific. So we should still be impeachin’ when you get home from work.
The same schedule is expected for Wednesday, January 22, 2020, and every day thereafter, including Saturdays, until the final Senate vote.
WHERE TO WATCH THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL ONLINE
Most cable channels have turned off their password and login bullshit, so you can watch the impeachment trial without a cable subscription. (Not Fox News, though. Wonder why!) Here are the online channels showing the impeachment trial:
WHICH PARTS OF THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL WILL BE PUBLIC
Since this involves Trump and Moscow Mitch, you know they’re hiding something. Turns out they’re hiding a lot!
They will broadcast the House Impeachment Managers’ arguments, and you will be able to watch Trump’s lawyers’ arguments. But you won’t be able to hear what any of the senators say, in fact, the government-controlled cameras will not even show the senators. So for all you know, they could be asleep or doodling or whatever.
Trump, meanwhile, is off at Davos, but he’s for sure totally watching this too.
